Bridget Dunlap’s first foray into dining in East Austin has closed. Mettle (507 Calles St.) announced last night on Facebook that it served its final meal Sunday. The restaurant, originally helmed by chef Andrew Francisco before transitioning to the stewardship of chef Carson Symmonds, will stay in the Dunlap family and reopen as a new concept in February.
I recently visited Dunlap’s Burn Pizza + Bar, which serves the best Roman pizza in town. Read about that here.
